Who We Are
Current pressures on the profession are creating a tremendous opportunity to redefine who radiologists are and what radiologists do. At the foundation of this change is the CAR’s young members, the residents and fellows. Residents comprise one-quarter of the CAR membership; this demographic is rich with energy, drive and a rewarding long career ahead of them.
The CAR Resident Section (RS) is the joint collaborative effort of resident liaisons and volunteers from all 16 residency programs across Canada, with a senior and junior Resident Section Liaison at each site. The RS is a for residents, by residents initiative with a focus on creating services and products that are relevant and useful by Canadian radiology residents.
At its core, the Resident Section seeks to engage its nationwide network of professionally committed radiology members-in-training with development and the distribution of resident-specific information and resources related to leadership, advocacy, quality and safety, economics, education and career development. The RS has developed a number of resources for both junior and senior residents across the country.
What We Do
The RS continue to develop many new and exciting projects. Most recently, work by the RS led to the development of a medical student network, which will help to provide opportunities for medical students from across the country to collaborate and continue to benefit from joint projects.
The CAR Resident Section welcomes feedback and are always looking for ideas for improvement or opportunities for collaboration – contact us.
